OK, you’re fat. You are ready to make the diet, exercise and lifestyle changes to finally lose weight and keep it off. But where do you begin? I am going to list six simple things you can do right now to start losing weight and becoming weight loss success story.

1) Sign Up For An Event, TODAY.

This doesn’t have to be an Ironman. Sign up for a sprint triathlon, a 5K run, a fun walk, anything. Just sign up for an event. Studies have show that people who do this are more likely to follow through with their goals. If you set a goal of losing 20 pounds by a specific date, that either happens or it doesn’t. If you do not make the 20 pounds, you go “Oh Well lets try to lose weight 20 pounds in another two months.” However, if you sign up for an event, that event is going to happen even if you don’t drop the weight. You do the event, you have fun doing it, and you see there are a lot of people just like you who are trying to lose weight and you feel the sense of accomplishment.

When you sign up for an event, it also changes your mind set. You are not just training and exercising to lose weight; you are training and exercising because you are doing an event in three months.

So, today, start your journey to becoming SUPERHUMAN and sign up for an event.

2) Start Adding Healthy Foods Before Avoiding Foods

More than likely, if you are over weight, you are not giving your body the “good nutrition” it needs. By adding “good nutrition” into Weight Loss Successyour diet (healthy vitamins, mineral, fiber, etc) your body will be better prepared to start avoiding the “bad” foods.

3) Small Daily and Weekly Goals.

If you suddenly total change the way you are eating and exercising, you might not be able to stick with it. There, set daily and weekly goals or “home work assignments” for you to do and WRITE THEM DOWN.

These can be as simple as, instead of drinking 4 sodas a day, I will only drink 2. That’s it. Can you do that? Only drink 2? Sure you can. So focus on that. Then when you are only drinking 2 a day, change the goal to I soda a day. Do this with you exercise and your nutrition.

4) Start Taking Probiotics

According to a study performed by the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition. “Twelve weeks of consuming a fermented milk product containing the Lactobacillus strain was associated with a 4.6 per cent reduction in abdominal fat… ”

Probiotics are live bacteria that are beneficial to the human body. It is a fermented product that deliver a dose of healthy bacteria. They are produced by the action of lactic acid bacteria and yeast or the combination of both.

5) Move!

Believe it or not you do now have to exercise to lose weight, but you do have to move. Set your watch alarm to go off every 45 min and when it does, MOVE. Do some air squats, walk around, do a few push up, a few jumping jacks, just move.

6) Its OK FAIL.

Let’s be honest, some days you are going to fail. You will eat like crap and you will not more or do any of your exercises. So what! Don’t beat yourself up. Just brush it off and try to better the next day. Everyone who has lost weight and kept it off failed at sometime. The reason they were successful at losing weight, was because they never gave up.

So never give up, never give up. Forget past mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you’re going to do now and do it. Just start a new day and never give up.
